I often hear about the scarcity of psychiatrist throughout the United States and have wondered why not use the existing technology that a great number of people already have to provide mental health services through Telemedicine. Telemedicine utilizes various internet platforms to deliver medical services to underserved areas. Traditionally, many have used Telemedicine to provide treatment to areas with a low physician presence. However, Telemedicine does not need to be limited to only underserved areas. It can be for: busy clients who are professionals that are unable to break away from the office, those that are traveling for business or fun, those that are unable to travel due to inclement weather, someone who is sick and unable to leave home, a stay-at-home parent, or perhaps, someone just wanting to have mental health services from the privacy and comfort of their home, office or any location where they feel comfortable. It is my goal to provide personalized mental health assessment and treatment for a wide range of clients with differing needs. I recognize that every patient is special, every situation is unique and that using video conferencing as a platform can be a great tool to provide mental health services to many.
